Cleanse this guilty heart of mine:

From sin’s bondage set me free.

By us, by all, be songs combined,
In praise to God the Son.

With sanctity arrays,
To God, from all His saints enrolled,
The Holy Ghost, be praise.
To God, whose Name His Word reveals,
Whom all His saints confess,
Whose grace His faithful promise seals,
To save, to cleanse, to bless:

To God, from whom all blessings flow,
Eternal One in Three,
From all his saints, above, below,

1 FATHER of heaven! whose Love profound A ransom for our souls hath found, Before Thy throne we sinners bend: To us Thy pardoning Love extend. - ightv Son 1 incarna, **śāśwaters, Springing from eternal love, Well supply thy sons and daughters, And all fear of want remove. . Who can faint while such a river Ever flows their thirst to assuage? Grace which, like the Lord, the Giver, Never fails from age to age.

Mysterious Godhead : Three in One !

Before Thy throne we sinners bend:

Grace, pardon, life, to us extend 1

258 PSALM 118. C. M.

1 BEHold the sure Foundation Stone

Which God in Zion lays,
To build our heavenly hopes upon,
And His eternal praise.

2 Chosen of God, to sinners dear,

And saints adore the Name;
They trust their whole salvation here,
Nor shall they suffer shame.

3 The foolish builders, scribe and priest,

Reject it with disdain;
Yet on this Rock the Church shall rest,
And envy rage in vain.

4. What though the gates of hell withstood,

Yet must this Building rise:
'Tis Thine own work, almighty God,
And wondrous in our eyes.
Watts. 1719.

2 Jesus, our Lord, descend;
From all our foes defend,
Nor let us fall;
Let Thine almighty aid
Our sure defence be made;
Our souls on Thee be stayed;
Lord, hear our call!
